HARK THY HANDS ARE THOSE OF ICONOCLASTS! - Episode 36

The world has gone mad! At once decrying the death of heritage in the middle east by terrorist hands and then squeezing in the end of archaeology in the uk as we know it. I, the anarchaeologist, will topple the tyrannical narrative and try show the other side of the argument and why archaeologists over the uk are worried.

Palmyra Must Fall - Episode 35

"The Echoes of the Past speak louder than any voice I hear right now" - Farewell Mona Lisa, The Dillinger Escape Plan

Words that have much meaning in today's iconophilic traditionalist society where the comical giants of politics saunter around proclaiming that simplybuilding 3D scanned monuments will somehow undo the damage done. Well don't hold out for any sympathies, because what the Palmyra reconstruction shows is that monumental heritage is more important than people.

If there are unjustices and debate in the public sphere concerning the past then let us as archaeologists not shy away, let us challenge the status quo, let's bring humanity back into the centre of archaeology.

Enabled Archaeology – Theresa O’Mahony – Episode 33

Today’s episode takes a look at the unknown world of archaeology as experienced by people with disabilities and some of the barriers they face when it comes to working and learning in the archaeological and historical sector. I speak with Theresa O’Mahony of Enabled Archaeology, a post-graduate student at University College London, who has used her own experiences to motivate herself to research how those with disabilities are treated. In this episode she discuss some of her preliminary findings and shares some sad and shocking stories she has heard from those she has interviewed for her research. Theresa is looking to set up a foundation to support those she calls Enabled Archaeologists, this term applying to both disabled/enabled and able-bodied people.

QUB a Dub Dub 2 - David Bell and Jill Almond

David Bell and I sit down to talk theory, being a mature student and most importantly of all, swords. We meander through the physical parts of archaeology and how an engineer became an archaeologist studying swords. And of course David explains the difference between a knife, a halberd and a rapier.

 

Jill Almond is studying architecture in asylums in both Ireland and Scotland and compairing the uses of space to create different environment. We discuss what archaeology is and the wide variety of archaeologists that exist within the research environment.

Göbekli Tepe, a conversation with Jens Notroff Episode 30

In this weeks episode, we go for the strangest of the strange and oldest of the old, Göbekli Tepe. This site situated in Southern Turkey near the border with Syria and is argueably the oldest momument building by humans, around  11,000 years old. The oldest 14C date is around 9,700-9,300 calBC.  Not only is the age interesting but the style and extent of the site are something to be behold. Jens Notroff, is a real life Indiana Jones and archaeologist based in Berlin. He has been working on  Göbekli Tepe the last number of years and has seen many amazing pieces evolve from the earth. I chat to him about  Göbekli Tepe and digging so close to Syria. For our German listeners, there is a little treat at the end (I apologise in advance for my terrible German), we talk how to become an archaeologist in Germany and how archaeology is viewed. Grab your Lederhosen, sit back and enjoy this episode of Anarchaeologist.

Anarchaeologist Speaks: Used History and Lead Objects - Episode 28

Today Tristan takes on the news in his usual rambling tones. The topics covered are from a number of different sources (listed below); with many modern discussions using history in hyperbolic ways to justify action and inaction, its time to step back and see how the past is used.

Recently a lead object was found in Israel, possibly suggesting very early metal work.

Working all day, Eco Homes and Palmayra - Anarchaeologist Speaks - Episode 27

Hello and welcome to another "I can't get a guest speaker so I am just going to ramble on anyway" episode. Today's episode is a bit more knowledgable than usual since I have now actually worked out in a field and not just poured over a textbook. I also wanted to talk about the recent news story of the ancient "Eco-home" and why that may a problem name and finally I talk a little about how people react to you telling them you're an archaeologist, or at least Anarchaeologist

Stephen Reid Of Immersive Minds - Episode 25

tephen Reid of Immersive minds takes us on a journey, from his time in call centres to his current business of using technology to educate. In particular, Stephen’s work on Minecraft recreations of historic buildings have taken the internet by storm with Penicuik House and Geocaching in Minecraft.

I take the tough questions to Stephen about using videogames to help educate children and what the challenges and benefits are; Does Call of Duty belong in the classroom? Does Tetris have the answer?

Stephen believes in immersion and you will too by the end of this episode.

Episode 24 : Robert "The M stands for Mischevious" Chapple

Hello Everyone and welcome back to the Anarchaeologist podcast! It's been a while but we are coming back swinging with an absolute belter of an episode. Today I am speaking to the wonderful Robert M Chapple - a man infamous (they say) because of a Crannog in Ireland and a 'recovering archaeologist'. Adding to this we bring up having a reputation in archaeology (undeserved or otherwise) and how to survive outside the world of archaeology. 

This has a lot of accent in it. 

Remember to follow me @Anarchaeologist and @ArchPodNet on Twitter for updates and you'll definitely want to follow @RMChapple too

Soup and Sandwich Meal Deal : Episode 2 - Games, Egypt and Society

Hello Everyone or alternatively helo pawb if you are Welsh!

 

Once again I am joined by Mr. Soup from ArchaeoSoup Productions bringing a somewhat respectable air to the chaotic show! We talk topical stories in archaeology, Nefertiti's Tomb and why that ties into press releases and sensationalism in the media. Next up we talk about how history is misread by society and Mr. soup and I get into a bit of a back and forth about the purpose of history.

We discuss the reaction to the recent Motherboard article by Andrew Reinhard and what that means for archaeology.

Are you a meta - processual archaeologist?

Episode 23: EAA Glasgow, Social Media and Ask an Archaeologist

Hello Everyone - so I lost episode 22 - oops, sorry.

 

Instead I am producing an episode here and now and with many more detintely in the pipeline. Today's episode talks about my new job, EAA Glasgow 2015 conference and what I have coming up for you in the next couple of weeks. An important message I would like to share is that of how speaking online isn't something we should do lightly, in fact, we should actually be more ready to listen to others and what they have to say rather than making sure our voice is the loudest in the room 100% of the time. It can be doifficult to feel heard especially in the ocean of voices on the internet, but we should take this time we have to listen and engage - listen and Retweet. If you want to read the whole thing you can find a link here to the blog.

Finishing off the episode with a little segment called Ask An Archaeologist with questions from my Twitter feed! Thank you all for sending them in!

Episode 21 : Tim Hunt, Biblical Vases and the Importance of Archaeology

Hello Everyone, sorry for the late release of this episode, I want to justify it with complaining about my life but I digress here is an episode of me rambling for an age. I would be in error if I didn't mention Tim Hunt and his recent comments (old news now) - relating to our own specific conversations in archaeology. Next up a story about a biblical vase and a name that appeared in the Bible. News about the Kennewick Man.  I finish the episode with a rant about the importance of Archaeology because it wouldn't be me if I didn't!

Hello everyone, this is a quick update abotu what's happening over the next number of months with the Anarchaeologist podcast. I am having to spread myself quite thin and I really don't want to keep apologising for not releasing.

Thank you to everyone who has interacted and talked to me on Twitter and elsewhere - you are amazing and keep me going

 

Thanks

Episode 20: Gabe and Tristan Battle For the Truth

Hello and welcome back to a crowning example of what really happens when archaeologists talk at length. Gabe Moshenska makes a return to the show, bringing us up to date on his Oral Histories project but soon enough a wider conversation on the presentation of the Second World War and how history is used by various political factions to back up their own ideas. Furthermore we descend even deeper into the world of Political Correctness, the right wing and how archaeology can be part of rediscovering history.

Episode 18 : Archaeodeath : Discussing the Pestiferous

 

Today we go into the depths of death; to the bottom of the pit to discover the man behind the blog Archaeodeath. Today's guest is Proffessor Howard Williams of the University of Chester, England. Here we discuss the meaning of death in archaeology and the role of Mortuary Archaeology as a specialisation. Despite this morbid topic, we have a wonderful chat about comedy, humour and not being super serious all the time (in fact sometimes it pays to be funny). Professor Williams explains the story behind his recent blog post on studying cemeteries. 

We also talk about who can speak out and what it means to be offensive  as a Professor in a University or as a young career archaeologist.

I discuss how metal and archaeology can come together and what the best rap battle between archaeologists could be.
